kind voices

The other morning Matt walked into my office and caught me talking to myself.
I blushed hard, mid-sentence, only then realizing that in my daily work-from-home-alone life I probably do a lot of chatting to yours truly.

The funny thing about it was that I was saying to myself, "You're doing great! You're doing great!"

It's nice to know that in my private moments, there are still kind voices in my head.

Or maybe I'm just practicing for parenting.

Your voice is "kind"... BIG hearted, and peaceful too.

Andrea...I have found that talking to oneself is the essence of truly great mental health. It's the ones who don't carry on those internal dialogs out loud that have to worry.... And yes, it's probably really good practice for all those things you will say as a parent. I talk more to myself now, than before I had my daughter. Keep on with those kind and wonderful voices in your head. :)

Aaaah, so GREAT, Andrea ...! I LOVE those special moments when the child inside you is taking over ...
Had a funny singing & dancing lesson in the studio myself today ... listening to Marillions' "misplaced childhood" (... chickened out on the other side of the room ... DH couldn't see me getting wild when coming home earlier than expected *blush*)

Yes, you'll need lots of those kind words in your parenting, for your child and yourself. Love the photo.

That is lovely. I hope that is catchy, I could do with some of that around here!
If you treat your little one with as much respect as that you are sure to raise a child who loves herself.

Perfect! You've already achieved what most seeking people are after - You know (and agree with) God's Thoughts. Can't you just hear Him cheering you on? You are giving voice to Spirit's absolute Love & Support.
Perfect.

What a fabulous picture...and a fabulous attitude! That is very good practice for parenting :) The next step is babbling various sounds and simple one syllable words...then working your way up naming the objects in your office over and over again for several hours :)

My phrase is usually, " Awh yeah - you are good,you are good" followed by a little hand clap.
Oh course this is done when I am alone. I haven't been caught yet.

I think that's awesome, although would you mind enlightening us as to what it was you were telling yourself you were doing great on?

Posted by: Savannah at July 23, 2006 06:39 PM

hi i happy that the i was think what do we do to help others

I think Matt was supposed to walk in on you speaking to yourself so you could see how positive you really are. I think we forget a lot to be nice to ourselves and to allow ourselves to realize we aren't so bad after all. I am glad you see how wonderful you are, we all sure see it.

XOXO

Oh, I wish I could be so nice to myself! This is a great reminder that positive self talk is possible. Sending you big hugs!

Of course, it is all your blog readers' voices that you are hearing.. you are doing great and how nicely you have introduced the power of positive reinforcement as the best tool out there.

xo! and all the best!
